Tuesday Tobacco Talks

October 20, 2020

October 20, 2020

19:00 To 20:00



Event Description

It’s impossible to explore the history and heritage of the Tidewater Potomac region and not talk about tobacco. So that’s what we’re going to do. Join us virtually from 7-8 pm on Tuesdays this fall to talk about tobacco. We’re going to dig deep into how this plant horn-wormed its way into our lives and shaped the land and the culture of the place that we call home.

Tuesday Tobacco Talks has four virtual sessions:

Tuesday, October 20: Planting Power: Tobacco as a Status Indicator in the 18th Century 

Tuesday, November 10: A Scientific Study of Sot-Weed

Tuesday, November 17: Buyouts and Beauty Queens: Tobacco Culture in the 20th Century

Tuesday, November 24: Sacred Tobacco: A Native Plant
